    I'll confess: I really like Sweet. I think it fits the album really well.

    Re: ***Official Rank the AFTW Songs Thread***

    I wrote this in the stream thread but I'll dump it here too.

    1. drunken soldier - loved the last few minutes, reminds me of older stuff, can't wait to hear it live
    2. the riff - wasn't in love with live versions, but studio was awesome. You can hear the quieter parts much better
    3. broken things - love the vocal melodies, great chorus
    4. snow outside - I feel like this one's a grower. Not big on the slide guitar, but I can see great potential. Boyd is great
    5. sweet - it's beautiful. I've always liked it. If you didn't like it before this won't change your mind.
    6. gaucho - Carter and Boyd are great, it's grown to be catchy to me
    7. if only - like it better here than live, it's a little too slow to be fun live. I like what Boyd's playing at the end
    8. belly full - Dave doesn't usually play like this, so it's a nice change. Will be a good E1, or a good intro to something else
    9. rooftop - good, catchy, it will grow on me. Not big on the chorus
    10. belly belly nice - sounds like Shake Me version 2. I think I like it better though, chorus is nice
    11. mercy - Not bad, but I've never loved it. I was happy to put this last being that I don't hate it

    I'm with you with Snow Outside. For sure the best song on the album (for me) after my first listen. I was sort of disappointed with Drunken Soldier. It's great, don't get me wrong. But after all the hype from Lillywhite and Fonz, and the fact that (apparently) Dave spend about 7 years writing it, I was just expecting... more... I guess.

    But Rooftop... that song is AWESOME!

    If I can somehow pretend like I never heard Mercy, Gaucho, or Sweet... then I'm blown away. I know If Only is going to grow, The Riff already has. As did Belly Full. Gonna be a classic for sure. Why? Because it is authentic and not glossed up like I feel Everyday, Stand Up and Big Whiskey were. Away From The World has got depth to it.

    Would have been stellar if that Mansfield Jam was worked into it somehow, but hey...

    1. Broken Things
    2. If Only (much better live!)
    3. Sweet
    4. Belly Belly Nice
    5. Belly Full
    6. Drunken Soldier
    7. Rooftop
    8. The Riff
    9. Snow Outside
    10. Gaucho
    11. Mercy

    I have only listened to Rooftop and Snow Outside once, so they might change, and I am not completely sure about Drunken Soldier yet because it's such a diverse song. Overall, a great album!!

    Re: ***Official Rank the AFTW Songs Thread***

    It really seems that Sweet is either really liked or not really liked at all by everyone. I personally love the studio version. Also, I think that Belly Full could fit nicely into an E1 spot if it was extended by 30 or 45 seconds. After one listen through, my list looks like this:

    Snow Outside
    Rooftop
    Broken Things
    Belly Belly Nice
    Drunken Soldier
    Sweet
    Mercy
    Gaucho
    If Only
    The Riff
    Belly Full

    Really, the first 5 could interchange at anytime over the next few weeks, such a great album!

    Re: ***Official Rank the AFTW Songs Thread***

    After one listen:

    Snow Outside - love the riff, outro + tim = jaw dropping. This will destroy live.
    Broken Things - beautiful all around, great boyd action, love the vocal delivery
    Sweet - Flawless, best sounding song on the album IMO.
    Rooftop - This is gonna kill at shows
    The Riff - Really tight, love that they kept timmy's solo at the end
    Belly Belly Nice - My favorite song in the live sense, but studio falls short.
    Drunken Soldier - Too much going on to fully process after one listen
    If Only - Sounds really tight in studio
    Gaucho - Like it, don't love it. Guitar seems more pronounced on the record
    Mercy - Pretty
    Belly Full - Very folky, but I enjoyed it.

    Great album after one listen, all the songs are good IMO. I think its going to keep getting better with each listen. Definitely blows everyday, stand up, and big whiskey out of the water.

    Re: ***Official Rank the AFTW Songs Thread***

    After one listen all I can say is that I really really like (1) Snow Outside and (2) The Riff. Just absolutely love those tracks!!! Snow Outside reminds me of BTCS in the outro and I've always liked round and round so it's vibe is just awesome! The Riff is a hauntingly good song. Dynamic and really emotional.



    (3) Broken things is very catchy too and just has a pure sound to it. Kind of reminds me of the tLWS. Great opener for the album.

    Then (4) Sweet and (5) Belly Full come off to me like short beautiful intimate songs that I know will get a lot of listens again. I think they are getting underrated here. They breath well and are balanced really well.

    Following that (6) Rooftop and (7) Drunken Solider are just a little too complex for me at the moment. Don't really get them in the context of the album and at first listen didn't like them as much as those above. That could change though.

    (8) Belly Belly Nice and (9) If Only are good for what they are but I don't imagine I will find anything deep in them. Just some good music that fills the album up nicely.

    (10) Mercy and (11) Gaucho I've listened to maybe 100 times so I can't include them in my list just yet.
